Deciphering the genome text of Bacillus subtilis uncovered a mine of unknown genes. My thesis work described polyamine metabolism in this bacterium. It further elaborates on its relationships with the still poorly known metabolism of sulfur. In B. subtilis arginine, decarboxylated by the product of the speA gene (wrongly assigned as cad, coding for a lysine decarboxylase) starts polyamine synthesis. An ureohydrolase, agmatinase, coded by the speB gene, subsequently produces putrescine. This molecule is the precursor of spermidine, synthesised by spermidine syntase (SpeE). speE and speB form an operon. We have extended our study to the phylogenetic analysis of ureohydrolases and spermidine synthases. This demonstrated that for polyamine metabolism Gram+ bacteria are quite close to archaebacteria, providing further insight into a heated controversy about the origins of the first cells. In addition our work showed, by combining in silico and in vivo / in vitro experiments, that many function assignments are erroneous in public databases. The pathway that leads to spermidine involves S-adenosylmethionine. We identified the corresponding decarboxylase (SpeD, a pyruvoyl-enzyme more similar to an orthologue that we have identified in Methanococcus jannaschii than to the enzyme in E. coli, an observation which again links Gram+ bacteria to archaebacteria), and discovered some enigmatic features of its expression. Finally, we analysed the fate of the accessory product of the reaction catalysed by SpeE, methylthioadenosine. Our study ended with a detailed analysis of the metabolism of this molecule, and more generally with the study of the metabolic cycles where the sulfur atom is involved. A general conclusion seems to emerge: many genes of unknown function are likely to be ordinary enzymes.
